    Hello Aleatorylamp,


    Happy New Year.
    I was wondering if you actually wanted to know about the issues that I found in your projects. Most people are too cautious or polite to point out issues...

    Hello Aleatorylamp,

    I am glad Smilo finally got his A-20 after all these years. We had been discussing this beast since at least 2011 but I don't tend to finish projects or in this case even get...

    Hello Aleatorylamp,

    You and I can fix most things even with a broken MDL without the source most of the time if we care to spend the effort.

    Hello Aleatorylamp,

    I also went through a few of the posts in the bomb loads thread that I linked earlier.
    The A-20 apparently could carry 2000 pounds in its internal bomb bay.
    There were two...

    Hello Aleatorylamp,

    The Glazed Nose on the A-20 really isn't particularly complicate but you are correct, it does cost significant resources in a AF99 project.

    Over the weekend, I put together...

    Hello Aleatorylamp,

    There really isn't any "interfering". We each build what we want to. What you build isn't going to affect my choices.

    Hello Aleatorylamp,

    I personally don't think the dorsal turret on the A-20G made for very nice lines which is why I picked a version without the turret to work on. This choice of a subject was...

    Hello Aleatorylamp,

    I guess we both will be building variants of the early A-20G though mine won't be carrying nose cannon.

    Hello Aleatorylamp,

    From what I have been able to find there actually was never a version of the A-20 that was 47.4 feet in length.

    I may of course be incorrect, but the A-20A would...

    Hello Aleatorylamp,

    I would strongly suggest that you DO NOT shorten the nose on your A-20.
    ....Or if you feel that you MUST, then do some more research to make absolutely sure that the length...

    Fitting plain flaps instead of split flaps is going to be a serious pain this late in the game.
    One of the nice things is that texturing will be simplified over split flaps.
